Abstract

Goal-based outcome measures are increasingly seen as important tools when working with counselling and psychotherapy clients. The aim of this chapter is to identify and review different measures used with children and adults, outline the considerations around their psychometric properties, and explore the benefits and challenges of goal setting and tracking. A range of goal-based measures is available for clients. The flexible and personalized approach of goal-based measures means that they can be used across healthcare settings and appointments, as well as contribute to collaborative working. Incorporating multiple stakeholder views and issues around client capacity have been suggested as barriers to the use of goal-based measures with certain populations or situations. However, with appropriate clinician training and a flexible approach to goal-setting and monitoring, measuring outcomes using goals should become central to the counselling and psychotherapy process for all.
